A pair of parrots at a local bird sanctuary. They look to be talking something over ..but then talking is what they're good at

Looks like we could have a "parrot" theme, with the great parrot photos from Cinnam0n and TW.

Here's mine: somebody forget to turn off the sprinklers last night.

All the rain we're having is depressing, so treated myself to some flowers.

Well I had another computer failure last Sunday, but I didn't lose everything, Yah! The weather here is dismal, here is today's forcast

Sunny. Local blowing snow in open areas late this afternoon. Wind northwest 30 km/h gusting to 50. High minus 23. Wind chill minus 37.

For tonight:

Clear. Local blowing snow in open areas early this evening. Wind northwest 30 km/h gusting to 50 becoming light this evening. Low minus 33. Extreme wind chill minus 43.

Sue, he is absolutely gorgeous! We can say that about boys when they are babies or grown, can't we! Sara, did you think Sue would forget to make sure he had on YOUR babygro? Sandy

Tonight I walked the boardwalk in Atlantic City, New Jersey and captured some great sunset photos.

ClaraSue, what a great sky shot. I've been trying for a while now to get a sunset like that.

This is my local library.Rather grubby looking, the writing up the top says Carnegie Public Library. Above the windows, the writing is Philanthropy, History, Science, Poetry, Travels, Fiction, Philosophy.



Wish they would give it a scrub.

We actually had some much-needed rain yesterday. Unfortunately the drains further up the road couldn't cope and the road ended up flooded.

I have been following the advice of one of my scrapbooking books, and taking photos of some of the bulkier souvenirs and ephemera that I have collected over the years.

This clay pipe and cat's eye reflector were given to me by my Gloucestershire cousins on my first trip to England many moons ago. They were just kids at the time, and provided me with the whole story about the cat's eyes whilst we were travelling along a country road in their mother's car one evening. The next day one of them found this specimen and gave it to me as a souvenir. The pipe is one of many that turned up in farmer's fields thereabouts.



Here's a story about the man who came up with the cat's eye idea.

Sue he is gorgeous and looks so big. Ren what a lovely babygro.
Wigwam we had rain yesterday and had to go past the airport. There were two spots which looked worse than that. On top of it they have been working nearby and the water was red from the red sand. Ugh!

Sue, he is so cute - congrats again.

Must ask, though - what is a babygro? Is that the little outfit he's wearing? If so, here we would call that a 'onesie'.

He has certainly grown up quickly from the first photo Sue, and yes djsgal, that little suit is a babygro. It's a brand name so probably not one you get there.

More houses from me today, another mock tudor pair in Temple Fortune.

Here is the clubhouse to the housing complex looking over the lake near us. It is very Disney and quite horrifically garish inside but looks OK from the train and from the other side of the lake.

What a doll!

Here's Katt, trying to tell me something. He's staring at his empty food dish which is just out of the picture.

The grandson is so cute in that shopping outfit! Congratulations, Sue!

As winter has settled in around here, I was looking at the summer pics -- here is what one sees a lot of around Lancaster County, PA. Again, it's a blurry drive-by photo (don't worry, I was the passenger.)
Though it looks like a typical Amish buggy, it might be one of the ones that tote tourists about, because of the very light colored clothes the passengers are wearing, but I don't know enough to know for sure.
Even the Wal-Marts out that way have horse sheds in the parking lots.

One of two churches in my town converted into theatres. This is Borderline Theatre. The other is the Civic theatre.
